The Environment -
Utility companies highly rely on outdated sources of energy. Fossil fuels are harming the environment, and are of limited quantity. As the world burns through its limited amount of fossil fuel supply, the price of fossil fuel based electricity will go up, this is simple basic economics, supply and demand. This same outdated form of energy production is also pretty messy. Carbon emissions are harming our environment, contributing to the ongoing climate change crisis we call global warming. Solar panels are a clean form of renewable energy, with minimum effects on mother nature. Cmon, we all love our moms, let’s help keep mother nature clean!
